Product Description

Review

What is good here is the clear and precise presentational style, an approach that is in keeping with the rubric and methodology adopted by examiners in ABRSM exams themselves...the new ABRSM syllabus and accompanying support material remains as the gold standard among exam syllabuses. (International Piano)

particularly useful is the fact that at the beginning of each test the possible parameters are now listed...also new is the fact that the examiner's exact rubric is included at the top of every page, so there should be no reason a pupil will not know exactly what to expect! Model answers are given at the back of each book which I'm finding particularly useful in showing candidates the level of detail they are expected to go into for the descriptive answers. (Arco (ESTA))

From a teacher's point of view, I thought the books were excellent in terms of content, layout and presentation...I feel they are an incredibly useful tool for ABRSM exam preparation. (Music Teacher)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book of specimen aural tests is very useful for those preparing for Grade 6 ABRSM exams. The section on answering questions about a piece played by the examiner is especially helpful as it gives good examples of responses about texture and character which can be tricky.

However there is a problem with this book in that there are not enough singing tests in the bass clef (and surely by the time you get to grade 6, many boys' voices will have broken). For the test where you have to sing the upper part of a phrase played by the examiner, every single example is in the treble clef! For the test where you have to sight-read a short phrase, only 4 examples are in the bass clef. So out of the 32 tests, only 4 are for voices in the lower register.

UPDATE: Since I posted this review my son told me that if you have a bass voice, you just transpose the singing tests down to the correct register. Apparently if you play an instrument where the scoring is in the treble clef (eg violin) you are not very familiar with the bass clef anyway. Bad luck if you play a bass clef instrument and you're not familiar with the treble clef!

Good examples in this book for my students doing their ABRSM Grade 6 music exams. I use this in conjunction with tests from other books. The book explains with excellent clarity what is required from the students.

I bought this product for my daughter who had a music exam.
It is part of the specification for ABRSM.
Arrived in good time.

This book was extremely useful: I could test my daughter's progress; she could do tests herself, and we could check answers and specimen answers. My piano playing is rusty, so to have the CD was really helpful - we just put it on and listened to the relevant sections.
Having two younger children who are also learning instruments means that we'll be able to put this book to further use when they come to study for Grade VI
